Gulf Air Commences Flights to Guangzhou and Shanghai

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, will commence scheduled flights to two prominent Chinese destinations starting in May 2024.

The new routes are to Guangzhou, located in southern China and renowned for its culture and vibrant manufacturing sector, and Shanghai, China’s largest city and financial hub.

Both routes will boost connectivity between Bahrain and China, one of the world’s fastest-growing economies and a global tourism market.

Jeffrey Goh, Chief Executive Officer of Gulf Air Group said, “We are excited by the opportunity to expand our presence in the Asia-Pacific region with new flights connecting Bahrain and the cities of Guangzhou and Shanghai in China. This move is key to Gulf Air’s strategy of calibrated network growth. These flights will offer greater choice and flexible travel experiences for passengers and create new pipelines for trade, tourism, and collaboration, benefitting both nations.”

In addition to connecting Bahrain and China, these flights will offer increased choices to customers travelling between GCC countries, Africa, Europe, and China, connecting through Bahrain and its new, efficient terminal.

Gulf Air will operate from Bahrain International Airport to Shanghai Pudong International Airport with four weekly flights starting May 28th, 2024, and with three weekly flights to Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport on May 29th, 2024, deploying its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft features one of the most luxurious business class seats in the industry.

Bahrain serves as a pivotal gateway connecting China to regions spanning the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), the Mediterranean (MD), Europe, the Indian subcontinent, and beyond. As an international carrier, Gulf Air operates scheduled flights from Bahrain International Airport to over 40 cities in these regions, with numerous seasonal flights recently introduced to the most popular tourist destinations in Europe.
